Cruise to Alaska has been on my bucket list for more than 20 years. Finally made it on Holland American Cruise Lines. The Takshanuk Trail Drive on my Kawaski Mule was one of the highlights of my trip. Having mobility issues I wasn't sure I could handle it. Well, I did, and thanks to Ronnie, Christy and the fine folks... More

Ronnie was such a great host for our Takshanuk Mountain 4x4 adventure this September during our Alaskan cruise. We had the best time riding up and down the mountain, stopping for stories and fun jokes told by Ronnie, and a great meal prepared by Christie. This was the highlight of my entire trip, and I'm so glad we took this... More

What a great trip. The trails were muddy with nice big holes to crash in to. 4x4's were very easy to maneuver. Homemade cookies and coffee, soft-drinks were available 1/2 through the tour. Coming back, homemade dinner with a nice fire going. Truly a great event do to the cook and guide. They were wonderful people and locals from Haines.

Ronnie, our tour guide was a joy and the food that Christie prepared was very yummy, especially the halibut. Only thing that would have made it better... More

My wife and I enjoyed this outing during a Holland America Alaska cruise. The package included a ferry ride from Skagway to Haines, where we were picked up and driven to the trailhead. The boat ride through the fjord was a great way to start the excursion, with lots of interesting commentary along the way. It was a cool morning,... More
